Ok several days ago my internet went on the fritz, and I ran a virus scan, and one of the viruses it found was resycled\boot.com. I sent the file to quarantine, and now C: will not open, and I constantly get an error message saying "Windows cannot find resycled\boot.com make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search. I am able to "explore" C, but am not able to open it. Please help, and many many thanks in advance!

Sincerely,

I think you got viruses on your computer. I recently got rid of "boot.com" off my computer. Spybot detected it as "Win32.Agent.sd" I would go to the malware forum and ask for some help since I am not a staff member and cannot help you here.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
